Celeste Lawson captures the warmth and beauty of the Tuscan countryside and the charm of an Italian village with her narration of Adler’s captivating story. Gemma Jericho, New York emergency room physician, has devoted herself to her work, her teenaged daughter and widowed Italian mother, and her vow not to have her heart broken again. When her mother is told that she’s inherited a villa in Italy, the family goes to investigate, only to find that another American, an attractive man with a teenaged daughter, claims to have purchased the villa. Gemma’s family cannot imagine the effect that this village, where their roots lie, will have on all their lives. Lawson’s voice is warm and strong, gracefully voicing the Italian phrases and accents and the extremes of teen conversations. She brings alive the food, the people, and the relationships, making it difficult to stop listening. M.A.M. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 04]
